Ballocki Champions League Thursday Night Recap

Danann Parx, Willis Loopen, cheerleader Eleanor Balbozar, Dude Gilruth, DawnRose Ruby.

Thu. 8PM PST Game 1: (Loopen & Ruby) 102 - (Gilruth & Parx) 81
Thu. 9PM PST Game 2: (Loopen & Parx) 77 - (Gilruth & Ruby) 67

We mixed up the teams a bit tonight and played a couple of unofficial 2 on 2 scrimmages. Even though tonight's scrimmages didn't count in the team standings, the competition was fierce. Tonight's hard fought Ballocki games were held at the new Ballocki Stadium located in the Celestial Game Tower game park inside SL.

The primary players involved tonight included some of our league's all-stars as well as a newcomer and a spirited cheerleader. Regular league players Willis Loopen (NY Firemen), Dude Gilruth (NY Firemen), and DawnRose Ruby (Atlanta Peaches) were all on hand for tonight's scrimmages. BCL newcomer Danann Parx was also on hand for the Atlanta Peaches along with his friend and new BCL cheerleader Eleanor Balbozar. Special thanks to Eleanor for cheering during tonight's matches.

The games were well contested and hard fought, especially the second match of the night with Gilruth & Ruby vs Loopen & Parx. That second game was an absolute defensive struggle, including the fifth minute of the game in which both teams went completely scoreless while competing for the Lucky Block which was eventually knocked out of bounds. Normally, ballocki is a high scoring game, but even though no one scored a goal during that minute, the action was incredible and intense!

As of tonight's games the BCL team standings remain unchanged, the Glasgow Scots are 4-3 during our pre-season exhibition matches while the New York Firemen are 6-4 and the Atlanta Peaches are 0-3. The London Lions team has yet to play.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the stadium tonight to participate in and watch the games!!!

Well, tonight's event is in the books, but don't forget that the Ballocki Stadium is now open 24/7 for free practice and scrimmages any time you want to stop by there to play. We will also be hosting more BCL league matches (mostly in the 8PM SL time frame) soon, so we hope to see you soon at Ballocki Stadium in the Celestial Game Tower game park inside of the Second Life virtual world!
